    Mixed experience this time. My reservation was for an outdoor table for Happy Hour, and expected to be seated in the same area as on my previous Happy Hour visit, which had been on the balcony. Instead, we were seated on the street level, with the umbrellas blowing so wildly that we feared they would fall on our heads, and we were very uncomfortable in the cold wind. When we asked to move to a table on the balcony, the waiter gave us a “song & dance” about why that wasn’t possible. Later, much later another waiter came by and when asked said yes, we could sit upstairs on the balcony. That’s what we did, and there were plenty of empty tables up there, no problem, and there we had an excellent waiter, and the food was delicious.

    We celebrated my friend's birthday and overall that was a positive experience. We had a good time and everything went smoothly. I asked for a candle for dessert and our dessert came with a "Happy Birthday!" inscription and the presentation was great. If only the dessert itself lived up to the level of other dishes (we had apple tart, perhaps it was our mistake)... The restaurant has various dining areas and can accommodate various preferences of the level of noise. We asked for a quite place and our table was in a very quite place, great street views and open windows (September).

    Celebrating a friends birthday. The service was amazing, especially considering we had special requests. They were accommodating, patient, and kind. The waiter was impeccable providing service before we even needed to ask. There were plenty of delicious choices and the prices were reasonable for the value of the meal. The cocktails were unique and flavorful. With a full bar offering a wide range of quality of liquor. They also provide complimentary bread (plus one for me) and beautiful scenery for quick pictures. Overall beautiful experience.

    Had been very excited to try this place and I’m kicking myself for the 150$ I threw out the window. Shrimp cocktail and the burrata for appetizer were okay. Entrees we’re awful. I got the lobster ravioli and it was just disgusting. It had a very burned flavor to it but didn’t appear to be burned. My girlfriend got gnocchis. The sauce was repulsive. Had high hopes for dessert. She got the apple tart. Apples were hard, the crust was undercooked and that too had a very burned taste to it. I had cheese cake. It tastes fine. A normal cheesecake nothing I’d spend over a couple bucks on. Ambience was nice. Our waiter was great and very attentive. But will never go back.

    Music blasting from indoors out to the patio where we sat was unbearable. Listening to a constant thumping drum beat was neither a good way to start the day nor a conversation. We asked them to turn down the level, but it did not help. I am a percussionist and found the music to be in bad taste, particularly for 12 o'clock in the afternoon. Food was substandard. I asked the waiter to be sure frittata was well heated because it was not warm enough the last time I ordered it. Yet it still was not properly heated. I had hoped to sit at street level tables with the umbrellas, however that area was closed. The only saving grace was the cappuccino with small biscotti. Entire experience only worth one star.

    Mediocre food that arrived so fast it must have been microwaved. The check was brought before we even finished eating. They had us in and out the door in 45 minutes, even though the restaurant was half empty. I had to apologize to my husband for what was supposed to be a fun night out.

    Overall, the restaurant was good. It was noisy because they had a DJ in the bar. A manager did come through and adjust it later. The service was good but there was an emphasis on upselling that felt uncomfortable. The food was very good. The salmon, with limoncello and green olives was very enjoyable. The flavors blended well and the salmon was fresh and pink. For dessert we had the warm chocolate tartino which we highly recommend. Overall, a good restaurant choice for a special occasion.

    The atmosphere and ambiance was great. Felt like the wait staff could have been slightly more engaging and not so cold. Noticed they were warmer with other tables they were waiting on. Attention to small details make a world of a difference. The food made up for the deficit. Compliments to the chef !

    This is a good spot if you're with a large group- a lot of large tables and seems to have the accommodations available. We got the sense it's less of a "romantic" or "date night" spot and more of a friends coming together spot. The bar seemed really nice, though, so could see myself going back and just grabbing a seat and a few snacks and drinks there.

    Waiter was rushing us constantly... Brought our food while still having our cocktails Unenjoyable and dec idle not to have dessert and left No sense of dining experience, but rather a street experience like Coney Island. A Real Bummer. We live in the neighborhood and had a similar experience here before Covid Pandemic ...but decided to give them another chance Bad decision...they don't care and only are interested in moving people in and out quickly

    Positano Coast by Aldo Lamberti was my first Philly resturant experience when I moved to the area in 2012 and has been my favorite ever since. The total package: food, drinks, ambiance, service, personal experience, parking, constant reinvestments over the years… the blueprint for my choosing where to dine. Always well done! My experience dining on 13Aug22 was top shelf. Thank you Louis and the entire Positano Coast team.
